About the work
Dale Carney makes densely layered canvases where thick accretions of colour and a riot of arcane symbolism express a primeval world of sensation, emotion and fantasy. In this screen print he represents the myth of the wooden horse used by the Greeks to enter and conquer the city of Troy. The innocence of its bright graphic style reinforces the metaphoric implication of the subject matter. This is a seductive gift, contrived under a false pretext, so as to gain entry to alien territory. This work has been included in the Government Art Collection.
